@tommy2118 I would describe the Borderlands series as more of a Diablo-shooter. The point of the game is to collect guns. More guns, bigger guns, and different colored guns (similar tier colors as other games: white, green, blue, etc). There are various pistols, SMGs, rifles, rocket launchers, and grenades. These weapons even have varying damage types, such as burning people. The Pre-Sequel introduces some new types like lasers and freezing weapons. TPS also takes place on the moon so you get some low-gravity fun.
There are six classes in both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel and each class has three skill trees. Your first skill, regardless of which tree you pick, is an Action Ability that is unique to each class. These skills generally have a cooldown of 60 seconds or so. You will use them often.
I feel the classes in each game are quite unique, but you will notice similarities in characters between BL2 and TPS. I don’t feel that’s a bad thing, though.
The storylines are filled with humor. I don’t know of many games that I truly find funny like these. I’ll give you this video to watch for a taste. This was a trailer to introduce a DLC character for Borderlands 2, the Psycho. You fight a lot of these guys during the game but they also made him playable:
For the price you really can’t beat the amount of content you’re getting with The Handsome Collection. Two full games plus all DLC for those games. To buy that on Steam right now is much more than the price of this box.
But I’ll be playing on PC because the game looks awesome with PhysX.
